It’s Hammer Time

As I mentioned earlier this week, I spent some time in Chapters and stumbled upon something only a few (me and hopefully some of you) would appreciate. I get that hammers aren’t exactly stationery but this is definitely one of those “I’ll know it when I see it” moments. And in my defense, these hammers were found in the stationery section. Still random, yes.

So you’re probably wondering what’s so special about these hammers. Well, for one, they’re not so utilitarian looking being that they’re covered with graphics. Smaller in size too. A nice touch for a designer’s desk. But other than that, looks pretty typical right?

Wrong! Turns out, tucked inside the arm are THREE screwdrivers. Now, I love tools and hardware gadgets. Not sure where it comes from, but I have a gazillion piece toolbox set, a power drill and if I had the space (and need) I would get a table saw.

So this graphically styled, yet sturdy hammer/screwdriver is right up my alley. It meets both form and function and in some ways is me in a nutshell.

Here’s what it looks like (many thanks to my boyfriend for hand modeling while I covertly took the pics):

Unscrew it again and you get this:

Unscrew once more:

Hammer Third

Ta da! Pretty ingenious and you’ll never be without the few tools that are always handy to have around. Seriously, is it bad that I get so excited about things like this? If you’re dazzled by its brilliance too I’m sure you can buy this online at various retailers and Chapters is selling it for $19.99.

Tomorrow I’ll wrap up the week with the rest of the findings from my fruitful browse.
